Jdub, great points...
Webbie, thanks. You guys have a great team and always compete. That's what we enjoy doing. May the best team win whoever they are or whatever division they may be in...

Tim, you're the one suggesting that teams cut players or friends for being successful. That's YOUR idea. Keep 6 or 7 and cut the rest of the team if you win. Do you hear how rediculous that sounds?? With your suggestion/idea potentially You and Jeff would have to split teams because you had a successful run or a great weekend at worlds and won it. Now you have to move up or split up this successful team. That's so wrong.......

Again, no one is making you play up, YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT!!! Leave it alone and go on to some other subject.

I promised myself I would stay out of this, but then again I promised myself I would quit playing ball and I just can't cure the softball sickness..... I also have to say my one final piece so here goes......

NO WAY should any team be required to break up. PERIOD!!!!! This is fun! What makes it fun is competing against the best with people that you really care about, my brothers from other mothers! If someone made our team break up I'd rather not play than have to retool This isn't a job it's fun. If teams don't want to play against the best competition then don't!! No one forces any manager or sponsor to play in a tourney against better competition. This post is unbelieveable, there's just one person complaining about the plus division and he doesn't even play in it. Our team is a 50 major team and we enjoy playing against the +division when given the opportunity. Tim before you say (again), why don't we join the plus division, that's our decision not yours. However, we're happy to compete with them. Get off the soapbox, just because you say it, doesn't make it right. Now I'm done!!!

I also like the 9 runs with 7 HR's.

DC13 is my brother. Not biologically, that's Mike, and he's my brother too! We've had each others backs for a very long time. Since we were playing together in the early 90's. Our whole team is like that. Our attitude has alwaus been that we play whoever is put in front of us. If we win great. If we lose, we lose. No crying about that they're a plus team or that it's not fair. We're all over 50 and we all still love competing or we wouldn't be doing this anymore. Line up all the teams that are over 50, get some fields, and let's play. May the best team that weekend win.

He's obsessed with the Plus division. It's funny too because Tim has a great team. MTC is loaded. They would fare well in the plus division......

Discussion: future of senior softball

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, please don't try and shove yours down my throat and I won't either... Here's mine - I play with Arizona Elite, a 50's major team. We relish in the opportunity to play against the best, regardless of what division they play in. We love playing in combined tournaments with 50 major + teams. We enjoy the challenge and feel as though it brings out the best in us. Me personally, I hate getting runs or an 11th defensive player. I/we enjoy the challenge of playing the best. If we get our a$$ handed to us then we need to play better next time. We've always had the same attitude. When we were younger and we were playing A's we couldn't wait to play in major tournamnets. When I played B's we always wanted to play up. I don't understand the mentality of breaking up teams, just like I don't understand the mentality of not trying to be a better team? Being a better team doesn't mean having a revolving door and constantly making changes. For us it means, stating off with the right group of guys that are comitted to winning, getting in better shape, guys that are making sure that they're hitting and taking grounders on their own if necessary. If they don't do those things then they end up getting rid of themselves. This is my first and probably last post, don't understand all the crying about better teams. Don't we all want to work to be a part of something better???
